Also, once you have a C-section, some doctors and hospitals will always require you to have C-Sections. Your uterus will have been cut up, flayed like a steak, and it will always risk rupturing with the contractions and/or pushing of natural birth.
Also, most hospitals do not let you hold your child after a C-section until you are stiched up, many times more than 30 minutes later. Any amount of time on google and you can read hundreds of reasons why skin to skin contact with mom in the first moments of life is so important.
Also, some hospitals make you stay an extra night if you have a C-Section. Do you love staying in hospitals?
You are more likely to have infection and/or blood clots.
Scar tissue may form inside the pelvic region causing blockage and pain. Adhesions can also lead to future pregnancy complications such as placenta previa or placental abruption.
Low APGAR scores can be the result of anesthesia, fetal distress before the delivery or lack of stimulation during delivery (Vaginal birth provides natural stimulation to the baby while in the birth canal). Babies born by cesarean are 50% more likely to have lower APGAR scores than those born vaginally.
